I love assembler, but I haven't loved any platform since Motorolla enough to really dig into it. I've been platform agnostic, first with ANSI C, then C++, then Perl/PHP/etc for 20+ years now.

The idea of making a language that's portable like Perl and powerful like ASM rules. I say we do it, and call it... C?

I voted for Lisp! Really, it's wonderful - there has yet to be anything I haven't been able to do in it.

I voted C++ (and I suppose C by extension) mainly because that's all I really know.

I used to really hate the concept of interpreted languages (e.g. Python, Perl), because I figured "why bother if it's gonna be 10x slower than a compiled program?", but now that I've done a little "research*", I can see where they can be ber-useful, even if there's a performance penalty. I've learned a little bit of bash scripting, but none of my scripts really do anything useful (yet).

* - Really more like "sucked up from random pages on the interweb"

I am later in life to college. I have been playing with computers since the C64 and never had any desire to code. My course in school mandated Python. I was really astonished to find how much fun it was to work ahead and learn the language. That is why it is what I voted for. I would like to learn other languages though. I downloaded some tutorials on Java and would rather stab my eye with a rusty fork. Is there any languages with the style am used to in Python that can easily build little cross platform programs. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

Python is cross-platform, much in the same likeness as ANSI C, C++ and Java. As long as you don't use platform-specific libraries, and issue commands through the system() function in C or C++ - or Runtime.getRuntime.exec() in Java - or hard-coding pathnames, you should be fine.
